How can we improve OneNote for Windows?

Send to OneNote from Outlook

Outlook allows me to "copy" an e-mail via "Send to OneNote" into a page. This is only working with the OneNote 2016 desktop app. It would be great if I could send an e-mail to the UWP OneNote app.

    I absolutely need the functionality to send an email to OneNote from outlook ! Printing to OneNote does not work since it will not deliver editable text and forwarding the email to a onenote email is not going to be compliant with my company security policies. So I will switch back to OneNote 2016, but I really belive this is something Microsoft should address ASAP.

    Yes, the send to onenote button is gone! I'm going to have to salvage my old computer and return this swanky new computer I just bought so I can continue to work effectively. Annoying!

    What happened with options "send to OneNote"? I can only print to OneNote. The new program looks great but is not connected to office365 at all. The options from the previous version have also disappeared.

    I wonder if Microsoft are noticing the trend here - more and more posts like this asking for features from OneNote 2016 to be included in OneNote UWP. There seems to be a rather obvious answer - just continue to support and develop OneNote 2016, which already has all these features.

    At the bottom of the Advanced section in Outlook Settings you can switch Send to OneNote to work with the UWP/Store version - but the woding isn't particularly clear!

    YES !!! What is the interest of OneNote now ? All the interesting features have disappeared...

    I am a keen user of onenote and outlook. Both at home and at work I have an Office365 account. In some situations I am forced to use the webbased versions, and it always puzzles me why it is not possible to easily send an outlook email to onenote in the webbased versions. Users are given the possibility to connect web-outlook with a plethora of third party apps, connectors, add ins and plugins, but no single one leads to Onenote ...

    Or am I missing something?

    I fully support this request!

    Thank you,

    Yes, definitely. I know we can "print" to OneNote app, but that puts a static image, not clickable text.

    I've decided to shift to UWP OneNote, so it's disconcerting to have OneNote 365 Desktop open up when I send and email to OneNote. I'm hoping to be able to uninstall OneNote 365 Desktop someday (will that ever be possible?) but I wonder what will happen to "Send to OneNote" if that happens.

    Agree with everyone below, the experience of uses and time savers from this fraternity below, shows all how powerful this tool can be in addition to what we're making the best of.
    Convenience, & speed, is the benefit.

    Yes please, this function is absolutely essential for me!
    I still have the OneNote button in Outlook but it always wants to send it to OneNote 2016 instead of the "new" OneNote. If that could be fixed, and also the same feature could be added for the mobile outlook app, it would be a real dream.
    Forwarding the email to is an alternative solution that I'm using for now but it annoys me that I can not choose the notebook/section i want to send it to then.

    And to include the "Search" box to quickly find a page or section.

    This is the key reason why i uninstalled the app and re-installed OneNote 2016 Desktop - i use the send to OneNote feature every day all day and from all my installed applications. I have multiple notebooks with dozens of sections in each so being able to send straight from Outlook/Word etc to the correct notebook and section and page is fantastic. Importing meetings from Outlook is also used everyday (I haven't been able to find this in the app) ... all key MS integrations that the app is sadly lacking.

    I use this as part of how I archive emails - I'll frequently pick them apart and rewrite snippets of information into actual documentation. I mostly use onenote 2016 just for this function now - and then move them in UWP win10 onenote.

    This would be especially useful for business customers that use the full Outlook experience. Really, there should be 1 mail client for WIndows 10 and features should unlock / change based on O365 subscription and if you're using your corporate account or personal accounts.

    The Windows 10 mail client cannot retain the formatting like Outlook and OneNote 2016 can.
